#954 closed defect (notsugar)

gtkrc profile for XO has gone

Reported by: dsd Owned by: tomeu

Description

Sugar-0.82 included a gtkrc profile for XO, which set the fonts as size 7. This has disappeared, at least I can't see it in sugar-0.84.5. Can it make a comeback?

The reality is that on the little XO screen, size 10 just feels to big, even though on a correctly-configured system it is the exact same physical size as size 10 on any other system. Until we have better solutions such as http://blog.fubar.dk/?p=102 the reality is that we'd like to use smaller fonts.

As discussed in the mailing list, as of 0.84 the recommended way of changing the effective font size is by using Xftp.dpi.

If what you want is to have a different way of setting font sizes, please enter a ticket about that.

This should have said Xft.dpi, of course.
